Positive Suite: ‘Plaza Suite’ paused after Sarah Jessica Parker tests positive for COVID

The revival of Plaza Suite on Broadway has been paused after the second of its two leads, Sarah Jessica Parker, tested positive for COVID-19. 

Thursday’s show was cancelled, days after her co-star and husband Matthew Broderick had tested positive; an understudy took his place earlier in the week while the Ferris Bueller star took some sick days.

“News about future performances of #PlazaSuite will be announced as soon as possible,” the production’s official Twitter account noted. “Everyone wishes Matthew and Sarah Jessica a speedy recovery.”

As reported, COVID-19 has once again caused trouble on the Great White Way: After star Daniel Craig and other members of Macbeth’s company tested positive last week, performances were paused. They’re set to resume Saturday.

Additionally, performances of the musical A Strange Loop, and the off-Broadway production Suffs, were also interrupted by positive test cases this past week.
